FBI probes bomb threats against Jewish community centers

The FBI is investigating the recent wave of bomb threats against Jewish community centers around the Big Apple and across the country, sources told The Post on Tuesday.

“For the past three months, he’s phoned in bomb threats to Jewish centers across the country and nothing ever happens. That’s not a terrorist. That’s a nut.”

A senior aide to President Trump, Anthony Scaramucci, came under fire Tuesday for suggesting that Democrats could be behind the calls —tweeting, “Don’t forget @TheDemocrats effort to incite violence at Trump rallies.”

Trump, meanwhile, during a meeting at the White House with state attorneys general, offered a cryptic response when asked about the rising acts of anti-Semitism — saying that “sometimes, it’s the reverse.” It’s unclear what Trump meant by that.

Later, however, at his speech to a joint session of Congress, Trump issued a strong denunciation of the hate calls.

“Recent threats targeting Jewish community centers and vandalism of Jewish cemeteries . . . remind us that while we may be a nation divided on policies, we are a country that stands united in condemning hate and evil in all its forms,” he said.

The bomb threats on Monday, and in recent months, have included the evacuations of hundreds of preschool children and senior citizens.

Photos posted to Facebook on Jan. 18 by a teacher at the Sabes JCC in St. Louis Park, Minn., showed four cribs that were taken outside.
